Huntingburg, Jasper mayors issue joint statement on coronavirus

We want you to all know that the Cities of Jasper and Huntingburg are involved in conversations on a daily basis with other agencies in our county dealing with the coronavirus. These include the Dubois County Health Department, Dubois County Emergency Management, Memorial Hospital, Greater Jasper and Southwest Dubois County Schools, and the Cities of Jasper and Huntingburg.

Currently, there are no reported or investigated cases in Dubois County. However, that could change quickly. All of the above agencies are doing their utmost to be prepared as possible. It is our objective to protect our citizens and the effects it may have on our communities. Collaboratively we will continue to monitor and play a role in maintaining public health.

We will keep you alert of any changes when we receive them. We will utilize email, social media and our radio and newspaper to release any new information as quickly as possible.

Remember to thoroughly wash your hands often, try and keep from touching your face and leave about 6 feet of space between you and whoever you are talking to. Also, sanitize things like your phone often!

Jasper Mayor Dean Vonderheide and Huntingburg Mayor Denny Spinner
